Maybe I'm just misunderstanding things here but, can't you/why didn't you just hack your old Wii? Doing so will let you play your imports and WiiWare/VC games without needing to worry about obtaining them from "other methods"...
If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct :D
As I mentioned earlier, I didn't want to risk messing up my old Wii by hacking it. I bought a different Wii in case the hacking turned out disastrous. That way, I'd have a fallback :-)
